A Formal Spring Wedding in Brooklyn

The historic Skylight One Hanson building in Brooklyn plays host to one couple's formal, romantic affair.

The couple chose Skylight One Hanson because "we wanted to have a short-and-simple civil ceremony, and to quickly move to the fun celebration," the bride says. The landmark location gave the couple a combination of "art deco features, mosaics, chandeliers and columns," and a significant amount of space that "could easily be divided to create three different experiences."

From their seats on Chivari chairs complete with coordinating rose-gold cushions, guests could gaze at two robust pink cherry blossom trees that flanked the ceremony stage. Above their heads floated a lattice of greens and cone-shaped candle holders.
